This chapter examines Chris Ware’s rejection of realistic figure drawing in his own comics and his promotion of memoir, autobiography, and realistic fiction in his anthologies. It traces Ware’s preference for the realistic to his roots in the alternative comics movement of the 1980s and 1990s, along with the movement’s aspirations to realism as part of its pursuit of the highest artistic ambitions. The chapter also looks at how Ware recapitulates aesthetics in his anthologies, most especially in the introduction to Best American Comics 2007.
